Please join Greg Tananbaum in conversation with two industry leaders as we discuss the nature of innovation. Peter Binfield (Co-Founder and Publisher, PeerJ ) and Timo Hannay (Managing Director, Digital Science) have both made their careers at the vanguard of scholarly communication.  During this session, we will delve into what innovation in this industry really means, how we go about it, and what constraints we face.  No PowerPoints, just a stimulating conversation and Q&A.

NOTE: Overflow seating is available for all plenary sessions in the Francis Marion Colonial and Gold Ballrooms.
